Haywood Estate

In 1980 Haywood purchased a small winery on lands adjacent to the vineyards, crushed his first grapes and began the process of producing wines under the eponymous Haywood label. Over the years the winery grew in size and different varietals were produced from sections of the vineyard that provided the best growing conditions for the particular grape. Soils ranging from well-drained sandy clay loams at the lower elevations to shallow, fractured, basalt soils at the highest elevations called for a number of varietal changes as did the effect of the sun coursing across the different facings of the hillsides. Today the Los Chamizal Vineyards are planted to mostly red varietals except for Chardonnay that is planted high on a north-facing slope.
